Printer seems to require both color and black in to print


I have an Old HP 990, with color and black ink.I just replaced the black ink but since it out of color, I can't get it to print at all. Is there anyway to get around this without also buying a color cartridge? (I adjusted the settings in the "properties" window to black, still nothing.)

  1. Most people don't realize that some color ink is used while even printing black.
    It makes the print look "nicer".
  2. ^thats not always true, many printers use just black to print black, but they still need colour ink to be there to function at all. its the way the printer was designed.
